Our Times, Talents, and Treasures

WHAT IS A STEWARD?


TIME
Stewards understand all they have comes from God.


TALENT
A steward receives God's gifts gratefully, uses them wisely, shares them with others,
and returns them with increase to the Lord.


TREASURE
A steward takes care of all things for the Master.


          STEWARDSHIP



                               God's love is as abundant as God's gifts.
                                  God's generosity cannot be outdone.
       As stewards, we thank God by sharing this abundance with others with open hearts.
